Estimating data transfer capacity for intermittent connectivity: A transport aware model
2016 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Communication performed with mobile devices will experience varying levels of connectivity as the communication device moves in and out of coverage. A subset of mobile communication devices operate under conditions where the connectivity is characterized by relatively short contact periods occurring intermittently. In this paper we propose a model to predict the amount of data that can be transferred during such short contact periods. The model includes aspects of the transport layer slow-start behavior and is validated using data from a long-running measurement campaign in the networks of four Swedish cellular networks. Further validation of the modeling assumptions is performed by employing a numerical optimization technique based on non-linear least squares regression using the iterative Levenberg-Marquardt approach. The model is then used to explore the relevant parameter space.
